The comentary sucks
I prefer to watch this movie in You tube in two parts, the first is writting in english, the second in german. So i can figure out, how is the point of view of a mason about the cristhian church, the robot girl.
While the visuals of this restoration are superb, the commentary track makes this totally unwatchable. I hate to say this but, putting this version in the archive was probably a wasted effort. I would recommend anyone who watches this to simply mute the audio and play it alongside whatever music you think is suitable. (Godspeed You, Black Emperor's F♯ A♯ ∞ worked very well for me.)
Just because it's a silent movie doesn't mean I want to listen to someone yammer on about the obvious. And if I turn off the sound then I don't get the music-- I suppose you could watch this with the sound off and put on a CD, that's about the only way I could stand to watch this version. Way to ruin a fabulous movie...

Just so you know, this version does NOT have "many of the parts that were missing." Those sections have been found and restored, but they are not in this print. Also, this version includes a commentary track that is pretty annoying. Look elsewhere for the complete version.
